There is something about lavender. Yes, the plant makes me feel like I’m living in a far away cottage in Wales or the English country side, on a cliff overlooking the harsh but stunning ocean, living off what I can catch and cook on my wood stove which I stoke hourly with the wood I brave the blistering chill to collect. As opposed to the reality of poppin off to the shops in my Honda to grab some overpriced wood in a bag that wouldn’t fit everything I carry in my handbag and some cookies that will sustain me for today at least. Sorry – I digress.
From a decorating perspective, I think it adds a touch of femininity without being overbearing. Also, in an instant, a burst of lavender can make a room feel like it’s about to be graced with home made scones and jam without you having to do a damn thing. Plus, it seems to go with everything!
Here are some lavender things I found and like. Hope you like them too.
My favourite colour combination is lavender and eucalyptus. Check this out.
The lavender flower is also hardy to chuck in a vase and it brightens any room. Bring on spring!
So what do you think? Any other good lavender colour matches?
